The great work that is happening every day across the health service was recently showcased and celebrated at the annual Health Service Excellence Awards.

Designed to encourage and inspire people to develop better health services, the awards also promote shared learning for other teams through awards success stories. The winners in the “Excellence in Quality and Patient Safety” category were the team from Health and Wellbeing in CHO5 (South Tipperary, Carlow/Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford) with their project ‘Supporting Pregnant Women and Extended Family to Quit and Stay Quit’ from smoking.
